Just in case we missed any details regarding the candidates in the most exciting American election since the Kennedy era, a new site, Electopedia, is there to keep us informed and updated. Why is it that 60ish women like me are excited by Obama and bored with McCain? Quite simple really; one is vital and evolving; the other is not.

Just to be clear with my own reasoning and to avoid the appearance of hypocrisy, ageism is not an influence. Why is Biden more riveting than Palin? Hmm. Could it be that one is also "vital and invigorating, while the other is merely smiling barbs and strutting Barbie outfits.
